Maybe that is why foam died?
Im not a foam tc guy at all... but I think a spec/single compound/tire/mold/etc is best.

Don't get me wrong I want to run foam period. I know not everyone agrees. I just want to know tires so I can test and setup based on the tire.

Chuck,
What is there to reconsider...
It will be run at the Gate
Maybe not at the other tracks because of the low turnouts...
Luv,
Wayne

Im too new to really understand the whole foam TC thing. I wouldn't mind trying it out, but maybe not for one race with a lot of tire options. It simply might not be for me... dunno yet. Just have to see what the local guys are doing leading up to it.

Default Foam Tire rules, from Mr. Miller :)

Sorry, for the delayed response, I've benn working a big project and have limited internet at least through this weekend.

The official word on Foam Tires for touring is:

Open Compound, Open Manufacturer, open wheel diameter.
Wheels may not me modified in any way, no adding anything between the factory molded wheel and foam tire.


Also...

3 set limit, must be checked in during pre-race tech.

Lol I was informed why foam "is bad" today. I didn't realize that foam changed that much from the days I ran it ie Jaco purple and plaid with 50mm diameter.

Foam is supposedly more expensive, but the racing is undeniably better. Rubber is why I quit racing TC........
